from the below list, anyone:
MS SQL Server 2005
MS SQL Server 2008
MS SQL Server Management Studio 2005
MS SQL Server Management Studio 2008

or any equivalent SQL Server compatible with Windows 7 Home Premium SP-1, 64-bit

You have to buy it or do you want the trial one?

i dont think it will install on Home P, just Ultimate/pro /or enterprise editions. or Windows server most edition ,good luck

edit / lower down the bottom of that link it shows this version and a few othere that work with win7 HP,like QL Server 2008 R2 Developer (64-bit) x64

hi,

I guess if you are ok with Express edition then go for SQL Server 2008 R2 Express x64 (64-bit)

You can only install SQL Server on Windows Server, the developer version can run on Ultimate edition etc... I had to do it for a student project...
